"I bought a beautiful prime rib roast. Followed the directions to a t. Because prime rib is already so tender, this recipe makes the meat taste mushy. I might try this recipe on a tougher cut of meet. I also found the ketchup over pours any of the other flavours. I won't be using this recipe on a prime rib again. I feel terribly leaving a bad review, perhaps I did something wrong, but the flavours didn't do the meat justice."
